PAX 09: Destructoid community meetup plans!

3:20 PM on 09.03.2009 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

PAX is less than 72 hours away now, and I know all of you coming this weekend are excited beyond belief. In fact, there’s a handful of people, including a bunch of the UK Dtoiders, in Seattle right now awaiting the big gaming party this weekend.

Thursday: At 5:00PM, Dtoider pendelton21 is getting this image made by our comic guy, Mikey, as a tattoo. Yes, really! He’ll be at Apocalypse Tattoo getting the ink.   

The Elephant & Castle, located right underneath the Red Lion Hotel, is the main rendezvous point for Destructoid all weekend long. If you're ever feeling lonely, just stop by the bar and you'll likely find people hanging outside (weather permitting). At around 7:00 PM, the group will be splitting up -- a bunch of people are going to a fancy dinner while the other group stays at the Elephant & Castle. 

At 9:00PM, both groups will be meeting up at Shorty’s on 2222 2nd Avenue, #A, and we'll all be staying until last call.

Friday: PAX TIME! Congrats to pheonix-blood, Dexter345, KyleGamgee, Toneman, LostCrichton, DJDuffy, The GHost, Tactix, Pangloss, pendelton21 and Kryptinite, who will all be taking on Mr. Destructoid duties as they walk the show floor from 10:00AM to 8:00PM.

From 12:00 to 1:00PM in the Unicorn Theatre is the “Hey Ash, Whatcha Filmin: How to make a moderately successful viral video series that confuses the hell out of people” panel. 

At 2:30 to 3:30PM in the Raven Theatre is the “How can we make online gaming communities suck less?” panel, hosted by Destructoid. DO NOT MISS THIS PANEL! Seriously, it’s going to be epic. Also, be sure to wear your Destructoid shirt at this time, as we’ll be taking the annual big group photo right after the panel. P.S. This is where you'll come to pick up your "Become" Dtoid shirt!

Then, in the evening, find Destructoid at the Elephant & Castle again at 10:00PM partying it up.

Saturday: Suit night! Various members are bringing their suits and dresses to dress up for the evening just because they want to. Plus, you’d want to look good while doing some karaoke at the The Crescent, wouldn’t you? Don't worry though, you DON'T have to dress up. You can show up in whatever you'd like to wear. Karaoke fun time will start at 9:00PM.

Sunday: Let’s drink the night away in style over at The Whisky Bar at 8:00PM. Plus, it’s near the water. 

Monday: Everyone cries, says their goodbyes and starts planning for PAX East and PAX Seattle 2010.

The plans can change on the fly, so you best be following on Twitter Hamza CTZ Aziz, Niero, Colette, Samit Sarkar, Nick Chester, Dale North, Jordan Jevore, Rey Gutierrez and Jonathan Ross so you can stay updated on all the plans throughout the weekend. 

See you all very soon!

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

Anyone know if the Bethesda games on sale on Amazon for a certain amount of time, or through Monday?

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Typing of the Dead > all other typing games.

Listening to this on a Tall Oaks level of RE: Revelations 2's Raid Mode is entrancing, for some reason.

Need a reason to support Indivisible? Shantae is in it!. Back it or spread the word, every bit of help counts.

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.

I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!

I finally caved in to those sweet deals, got Shantae and The Pirate's Curse, Downwell and Super House of Dead Ninjas :)

I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards.

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Two more days to get in on the unofficial Christmas Card! [Url][/URL]
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.
